On Tap: The Muddled Pig Gastropub Coming Soon to Maplewood
Another new dining and drinking destination is on its way to Maplewood. The Muddled Pig Gastropub will be opening in the space that formerly housed The Wood by Austin Hamblin and Michelle Allender, two former executive chefs at Bella Vino Wine Bar & Tapas in St. Charles. As reported by Feast, the duo’s new venture will focus on pork, with upscale pub food and a whiskey, bourbon and scotch bar along with craft cocktails and modest wine selection. The Wood will close after service this weekend on Jan. 31, so expect to see the new spot open in February.
